Back to Mrs Packard

andy

Hey Rita! So awesome that you want to carry on helping me with the geocaching contest!

Would you be able to head back over to my Grandma, Mrs Packard? Ask her if she’s received any applications to my competition? I expect we should have received some applications by now, wouldn’t you think?

Objectives: Pick up the competition applications from Mrs Packard.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 25 with Firgrove

Ride up to Firgrove Village and speak to Mrs Packard by her house at the rear of the village.

mrs_packard

Why hello to you Rita! How are you?

You want to pick up the applications for Andy’s competition?

Gone With the Wind!

mrs_packard

I’ve got some bad news about the applications, I’m afraid…

I’d just opened the mailbox to collect my letters when at that exact moment, a big gust of wind came from absolutely nowhere! I wasn’t at all prepared for it, and so all of Andy’s applications suddenly found themselves scattered around in the wind!

Oh, loveliest Rita, how sweet of you to ask whether any of my own mail was blown away… You’re ever so thoughtful.

Well, the mailman hadn’t actually delivered mine by that time; the only thing in the mailbox were the applications for Andy’s competition.

Would you be so kind as to help me find the applications that flurried away, dear Rita?

Oh, thanks ever so much dearie! How very kind of you to help me gather up all the missing applications. I should rather imagine they’re spread out all over the village by now. It would be ever so sweet of you to gather them up and bring them back to me.

Objectives: Collect all the competition applications that had flown off!

Rewards: 45 Jorvik Shillings, 35 XP

Reputation: 25 with Firgrove

Pick up the pieces of paper that are flying around in the wind around the village, then return to Mrs Packard when you have them all.

Thank you ever so much, you wonderful little jewel!

Andy’s Applications

mrs_packard

Truly adorable of you to have gathered up all the applications that flew away, dearest little Rita. Are you going to take them to Andy now? I hope he won’t be too disheartened, there didn’t look to be that many responses, I’m afraid.

Rita love, will you take them over to Andy?

Objectives: Give the competition applications to Andy.

The Art of Collecting a Secret Prize…

andy

Now, almost everything’s ready for my geocaching contest. The only thing missing is the prize to go in the treasure chest you helped me assemble.

Right now, the prize is with the Councilman in Firgrove. He let me store the prize with him since I was so busy with all the preparations here.

Would you be able to trot over to the Councilman in Firgrove and pick it up for me?

Thanks so much Rita! Promise you won’t take a sneaky peek at the prize! It should be a secret right up until the winner finds out what it is!

Objectives: Collect the prize for Andy’s contest from the Councilman in Firgrove.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 20 XP

Reputation: 25 with Firgrove

Ride to Firgrove Village and speak to Mr Franklin, the Councilman.

Hey! You’re here to collect the prize for Andy’s contest, I presume?

Resisting a Sneaky Peek

mr_franklin

Andy asked if I could keep the prize for him here with me. It seems as though he has had ever such a lot to do with all the preparations for his competition. I’ve seen all the posters around the village, it really seems like a great initiative of his!

What the prize is or could be is something I have absolutely no idea about whatsoever, but I dare say the winner of the competition will find out soon enough! Haha!

Will you ride over to Andy with the parcel containing the prize? Fantastic Rita! It’s a little on the heavy side, but I’m sure you’ll be able to handle it.

Objectives: Take the parcel to Andy.

Welcome to the Competition!

andy

Doesn’t seem like many people applied for my contest…

…Sigh.

Hmm… What should I do now…?

You know what, Rita? Maybe you’re right. Maybe it does take time to build up a reputation and get people interested in a competition like this.

But even if not as many people applied as I’d hoped, we have to run competition anyway! Especially with all the preparations we’ve done together.

Would you like to have a go?

For real? Great! You sure?

Haha, fantastic! You think it sounds fun? Nice! Lucky I never showed you the clues I hid!

I’ve hidden five clues, all spread out in locations around Firgrove. I’ll give you the first clue and then it’s your job to let it lead you to the second clue’s location… Carry on like that until you find the last clue, which is when you should ride back to me and tell me what you’ve found. The person who finds all the clues in the fastest time wins my amazing prize!

You ready then Rita? Here comes the first clue. Listen carefully now!

Iron, metal, gems and stone,
This place: a miner’s second home.
The second clue is what you’ll find
With mind over matter, but not over mined!

When you’ve worked out where I’m talking about, head over there and start looking. Then you’ll find clue number two! Good luck!

Objectives: Find the second clue.
